Speak Up New York! [*Institutional License]
Price: $175.00

Low turnout among our nation's youngest voters (18-24) is a growing epidemic. In the 1998 State and Federal elections, less than one fifth of the eligible youth voted. While young people are often the subject of political discussion, their opinions are seldom included in civic dialogue...until Speak Up!

This exciting youth-produced documentary chronicles the Speak Up New York! civic engagement initiative that spent a month on the road, visiting over 20 cities across New York State, holding over 45 civic engagement events, and registering over 2,000 new voters. Thousands of young people and at least 75 local officials and candidates participated. Using our state-of-the-art Cybercar, a full production studio on wheels with a huge exterior video wall, DCTV crossed New York State to record the voices and views of young New Yorkers and brings their ideas to local politicians, including the candidates for Governor.
